RIC V874


RIC 874 (Vesp), BMCRE 305 (Vesp), RSC 106 Rome Mint, 75-79 AD Obv - T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r. Rev - IOVIS CVSTOS; Jupiter, bearded, naked, standing facing, sacrificing out of patera in r. hand over low garlanded altar and holding long vertical sceptre in l. VF A coin type, which was also issued by Vespasian, symbolizes the Emperor's safety after a plot. Helvidius Priscus' execution around this time comes to mind. While the flan may be a bit ragged and the legends not full, the portrait is wonderful and it caught my eye.
